Family heritage of calamities was passed to Ethan. There is no evident aggression from his parents, yet there is no sign of respect family values, he was deprived from developing effective life expectations. Although Jamaica Kincaid’s “Girl”, Junot Diaz’s “Fiesta 1980”, and Edith Wharton’s Ethan Frome contain different experiences from childhood to adulthood, the texts from these authors relate to dismissive relationships between parents who intent to teach discipline, respect for their traditions and demands, as well as adequate moral compromises due to failure on the methods parents use with their children. Human relationships do not guarantee ideal function, even if it is between a parent and their child. The presence of fear when opposition is presented, turns any situation relating respect

Within the wall, there are no jobs available and with resources constantly getting depleted, they will get poorer and poorer. The federal government is powerless to improve the situation. Lauren knows the only alternative for many families is to move to the company town of Olivar. In Chapter 11, Reverend Olamina, Lauren’s father, says “Freedom is dangerous…but it’s precious too. You can’t just throw it away or let it slip away.
In Ethan Frome, Edith Wharton depicts Ethan as a tragic hero who gets downtrodden by his circumstances and mainly, his personality. He has the tragic flaw of not being willing to put anyone in pain even if he benefits from it. Through this, he gets blocked from pursuing an education when he must care for his ill parents. Consequently, he also doesn’t get to socialize with other people of his age, making him feel awfully lonely. To further his tragic predicament, he marries Zeena, his cousin who arrives to take care of his mother and unfortunately, she prevents him from pursuing his love for nature and engineering by wanting to stay in Starkfield forever for her own ego.
Jewel “does not love in word, neither in tongue, but in deed and in truth”, Faulkner’s idea is that Jewels behavior is solely due to the fact that his mother never really outwardly gave any of her children compassion so Jewel picked up on this and continued to keep up with this behavior (1 John 3:18). Darl’s behaviors on the other hand are quite selfish and only prove to be for the benefit of himself and his own self gain. Darl wants to have all the attention that he does not get from his mother to be solely on him and no one else. Faulkner’s reasoning behind the very different behaviors of these two brothers is to express the very extent in which the
This disease is similar to the book "The Giver" in many ways. The collective absence of memory in the Giver is similar to that of Alzheimer 's victims because they have no imagination, it causes problems within their families, and no one gets to know their true personalities. Those who suffer from Alzheimer 's disease have no imagination. Many lose the ability to imagine themselves in a different context. They cannot do things like imagine a dream vacation or a fun day at the beach.
As a result of attachment issues foster children tend to feel uneasy in the home they are placed in. According to Dashaun Jackson who was raised in a foster home, “I found that foster care did not build families. It didn’t give me the opportunity to be a child. It forced me to mature a lot faster than my peers. It made me live life thinking that “today is the day that I’ll be leaving,” so don’t get comfortable and definitely don’t get attached to anyone.” The results of being in a foster home has made many other foster children experience similar feelings to being in a foster home.
This issue also affects students who are not as interested in the arts because they will never get to appreciate how significant art is to Canadian culture. Teachers, especially teachers who specialize in the arts, are now having difficulty finding jobs in their field because of the limited spots available. They are being forced to teach subjects that they are not familiar with just to find a job. School boards are also the ones who have to deal with budget cuts and decide what needs to be taken out of the
He never truly accepted his adoptive family. He felt like he wasn’t good enough for his biological family then he wasn’t good enough for his adoptive family. As a result his anger and confusion began to build and eventually began to effect his social and occupational life. During high school, Tyler didn’t participate in sports or develop many relationships with his peers. Although Tyler’s adoptive parents raise him and taught his just as Cody’s parents did, he began to regress and eventually began thinking that he didn’t have to work for anything in life and that people owed him something.
However, the sad reality is that in most cases is too late and an individual will not get treatment for a mental health diagnosis while in prison. In this case I feel that Leon is a victim of environmental, his mother’s mental health issues, social support, and finical poverty that caused him to become who he is today. Early interventions could by educators, and mental health professionals could have helped Leon at an eelier stage in his life. But it does appear that there may have been missed opportunities to clearly understand what he had experienced in the early part of his life. Because of his behaviors he was labeled a ‘bad kid’ and early interventions never took place with him or his
They were punished if they were caught talking their language. Some children never learned anything traditional and had little to no education. It was seen that the girls became domestic servants and the boy were to be stockmen. The effects that this had on the aboriginals was that they developed a sense of loneliness, low self-esteem and a loss of identity and to this day still causes a lot of mistrust towards white people. That’s why today when you are dealing with indigenous or Torres strait islands it is important that you find out a bit about their background so that you are aware, respectful and knowledgeable about the culture and beliefs, as everything we do as educators is reflected on the children and families in our centre.
This normal life for Alan would be one of the hardest things for him because he was never raised to be normal. After taking time to talk with Alan and hear more about his parents, I learned that his life was very protected and he was never really able to explore anything or understand the basic principles of life and the interactions he has with other humans. Because Alan worshiped these horses so much, he almost valued them as humans, giving him a false sense of identity of who he really was. This then meant that when he had encounters with humans like the time he was almost very intimate with Jill, he said he couldn’t stand her
